Imagine an all-encompassing darkness. You have the taste of ginger in your mouth, like after the gingerbread your grandmother baked for Christmas. The smell of burnt wood and… fur is all around you? You stretch your hands out in front of you and encounter a wall, surprisingly warm. You move carefully along it and come across metal. The cold metal door has thick hinges covered in grease – you feel its stickiness on your fingers.
You are Hansel locked in the evil witch’s oven. Red Light, Green Light, 1, 2, 3!
Grimmtale is my tribute to the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, fueling childhood fears. These stories entertained, drew us in, but also frightened us a bit. They accompany us throughout our lives. Perhaps because they resound with the inevitable.That in each of us there is an innocent and good Snow White. And in each of us lies the big bad wolf.
